To summarise, I think this is a real achievement by all involved, and must rank with the best of the period-aware performances of both Stabats. It has a genuine sense of occasion, rather like a Baroque jam-session. Avoid it if you are wedded to a slow, funereal rendering with massed swooping strings and wobbly operatic stars!

Susanne Rydén has a wonderfully pure but sensual voice and a fine declamatory manner. — International Record Review
